FLASHBACK: Tories Slam McNulty for Miller Style Expenses
“Brown has to get a grip on what his ministers are up to…”

David Cameron is said to have offered Maria Miller his ‘warm support’ this morning. Rewind to 2009 and the Tories were piling the pressure on Labour Minister Tony McNulty for claiming £60,000 for a home that his parents lived in. Bob Blackman, now an MP, said:

“It is extraordinary. I cannot see that it’s right to provide a home for your parents and ask the taxpayer to pay for it. I think he has badly let down the residents that he represents and I welcome them taking their revenge at the ballot box.”

Maria Miller has been moaning that her own investigation was political motivated because Labour grassed her; yet it was Tory MP Greg Hands (now a whip) who reported McNulty to John Lyon, then the Commissioner for Standards, saying arrangements must be “above reproach”. Look how cross he was then:

“I think Gordon Brown has to get a grip on what his ministers are up to. Sixty thousand pounds of taxpayers’ money has been claimed in expenses on Mr McNulty’s parents’ home in Harrow – clearly something has gone wrong here.”

McNulty lost his job and his seat. Miller has claimed £30,000 more than him and gets a slap on the wrist. “I have accepted the committee’s report in full and I will apologise”, she chuckled.

      Well, she is female, so you’re half right.

      And it’s her genital arrangements that will probably save her. Dave can’t ditch both Warsi and Miller, that would really screw up the quotas.

    It doesn’t matter in the slightest who ‘grassed’ the wretched woman – if there is any suggestion she broke the rules then an investigation is essential, although it beats me how it took 16 months to produce a report, even allowing for her obstruction and prevarication, along with the sinister threats from her assistant to the DT.

    She is clearly unfit for high office and should be sacked today.

    Would you like us to reserve a traditional, Victorian-style lamppost for you, or a more modern offering? I would suggest a cast iron Victorian one will hold your weight better, and is less likely to snap, making us have to string you up repeatedly.

      Just another thieving parasite, courtesy of the Dunce of Downing Street. In Maggie’s time “full support” meant that you were finished and gone by the end of the day. But with One Term Dave he actually means it! I think he must be a bit thick, or out of touch, or both of course.

    As we see today with miller and a simple apology will suffice and she has Cammerongs support,you just have to wonder what politics is about in this country when people are thieving taxpayers money.
    Farage yesterday said what ordinary people are thinking and what they want to see happen,on the other hand we see support given to the miller cheat and in fact this is only the tip of the iceberg.
    We need change and honesty and acountability rather than what we have seen for decades.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
